Retired, farm-dwellers now enjoy Volunteering & travelling

Ultra Host

Super Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are both retired, living on 80 acres in Central Kansas. Enjoy volunteering with disaster relief organizations and church-related mission projects. We travel on occasion in our 32' fifth wheel, and enjoy the company of other RVers, especially those who also share our love for square dancing.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Mrs is a retired RN, Mr is handy, since he can't be handsome.

rckrehbiel's Pets

At present, we support 12 cats on the place, none of whom are allowed in the house. We are presently dogless, but keep being tempted by almost every puppy we see. Our pasture also is home to 1 Shetland pony, Sugar, that the Grandson has adopted as his own. No pets travel with us......yet.

rckrehbiel's Hometown

Our town is the proud home of Kansas' Largest Night Rodeo: Pretty Prairie ----yes that's right---Kansas. Wonderful small town living.

Wonderful couple!

Lovely couple making their way around the country. They had just a quick pop-in along their way, but I could easily tell they’d be fun to get to know better if they ever head back this way.

A brief but great visit

There's never much time on an overnight. But Rod and Chris are a delightful couple. We had a fair amount of great conversation before they settled in for the night. Come on back when you're back in town!!!

Super guest.

Rckrehbiel were excellent guests. Their stay was short so we didn’t have much chance to visit. They are welcome back anytime. Safe travels.

Lovely Overnight Guest

Rckrehbiel were a wonderful couple. We would have liked to socialize with them during their quick stay, but COVID-19 and snowy weather prevented that. We hope they will stop by the next time they are in the area. They are always welcome!

Wishing them safe travels.

A highlight of my trip

Their property is amazing. Very relaxing and they were accommodating and communicated well. They were out when I arrived and made an effort to make sure I found everything Ok. I look forward to visiting again. I’d go out of my way for that visit.

Pretty Prairie Perfect!

This was our first BDW stay and we had the best experience ever! The host was very warm and welcoming and the property is loaded with things to do so if you want to relax and enjoy there are lots of beautiful spots on the property. They have a couple of ponds, zip-line, diving board over a pond, a cool tree slide, benches, swings, etc. Only 15 minutes from Huchinson, and 45 to Wichita makes it a very convenient location. We enjoyed the sunset over the barn and ponds, watching the tiny hummingbirds along the garden, and the amazing breeze that made my wind chimes sing a lovely melody. We feel spoiled if this is what BDW is all about, what were we waiting for...Amazing!

Wonderful place and people

Such wonderful and kind hosts, Truly special people with a fantastic property. So much fun for kids who like to fish. Could hardly get the pole in the water and fish on. Great conversations. May God bless them.

Excellent Hosts in Pretty Prairie

Oh wow! Best hosts ever! Beautiful and scenic property with ponds, zip line, swings everywhere! Helpful and accommodating hosts don't even touch a good description. We shared many stories and hated to say goodbye, but we got sent off with homemade jelly, which tasted like "liquid gold"! We were even given a home grown cantaloupe! Will go out of our way next time to stop here again! Thank you for making our trip more pleasant!!

Pretty prairie, indeed!

We are so grateful for our stay at Pretty Prairie! We woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise, songs of birds and frogs and tons of beautiful land to walk around. The dogs were thriving!!! Our hosts could not have been more kind! We wish that we had been able to stay longer. Pretty prairie is worth the stop and worth the slow down. Thank you again sweet hosts!

Favorite stop

Pretty Prairie is our favorite Boondocker spot. Absolutely lovely gracious hosts. We’ve stayed twice now while coming and going to the west. We wish them the best always!

Awesome Boondocking spot!

Terrific place to boondock and terrific people as hosts. It sure was windy! But we didn't blow away. 😉

AMAZING LOCATION AND PEOPLE!!!

My wife and I could not come up with the words to describe what a BEAUTIFUL and manicured farm they have. The only thing nicer than the actual farm was the family. I could not come up with a single thing they could do make this a better experience. Next trip across the mid-west we will go out of our way to visit them again. What an amazing experience, better than any resort we have been to in all our years of travel!

Wonderful place in Kansas

The road can throw some sticks in your spokes. Our hosts were incredibly accommodating and had a gorgeous property with plenty of privacy. I only wish we’d have had some more time to enjoy all the property has to offer but our schedule didn’t allow for it. Hope to be back again next time we swing through the Great Plains. Thank you two for everything- now go find some mushrooms!

Wow!! They have set the bar extremely high for all future BDW stays!!!

This was our very 1st BDW experience and it couldn't have been better. The hosts were absolutely wonderful, welcoming and helpful. They have a gorgeous spot in central Kansas with a couple of ponds, a disc golf course, tree swings and even a zip line over one of the ponds. We took many walks around the ponds and grounds late in the evening to watch spectacular sunsets. This location is convenient to Wichita and other small towns - Hutchinson (AKA Hutch), Yoder and Cheney.

Places to visit: Carriage Crossing Restaurant and Bakery (get your pie 1st!!), Strataca, Cosmosphere and Cheney Reservoir.

This is definitely a must return to spot. What a fantastic visit, thanks for everything.

Peaceful and beautiful

Had the pond and lush green area all to myself. So much better than crammed into a commercial campground

Amazing and Gracious

Rckrehbiel was a great host. They let us stay for 4 days and provided good recommendations for local establishments. The property is a Midwest dream and was relaxing to walk around. I imagine their kids had a wonderful childhood, given the frisbee golf, fishing, slide, swings, etc...

Lovely location with equally lovely hosts

We spent one night here and could have stayed much longer. Woke in the morning to the song of birds and views of a pond and green fields. Directions were easy to get here and hosts were prompt with their responses. But their kindness is what really made our visit so memorable. We had a problem with our hitch and one of our hosts worked on it with my husband while I sat on a swinging bench chatting with the other host. It’s all about the amazing people you meet. Lovely people ❤️

Serene and beautiful place

Excellent place for our first boondocking adventure. Hosts were friendly, helpful and pleasant to visit with, could not have been nicer. Wonderful experience like camping in a park.

Lovely and restful farm

I can't say enough about this lovely and peaceful little farm. The word that keeps coming to mind is bucolic.
They're are so many sweet surprises around every corner, swings, a gazebo, fire pits loaded with kindling and firewood. The lovely sounds of bullfrogs calling to each other. I even caught a big large mouthed bass!
Our hosts were kind and accommodating. We'll definitely be back.

Fireflies and Frogs

Absolutely beautiful location with wonderful hosts. We’ve Boondocked lots of places and this will be remembered as a favorite. Our site was beside a pond full of bullfrogs and prairie birds overhead and on the fences. The cows were quietly grazing in the adjacent farm. The fireflies were blinking as I went to bed and all through the night. Thank you for a wonderful visit.

We visited Cosmosphere and the Strateca….highly recommended.

Couldn’t have asked for more!

This was our first boondockers welcome stay and I’m not sure we can ever top this! The property is just gorgeous and the hosts are so kind and generous. A perfect jumping off spot for many local attractions and a great location if you just need a quiet getaway. A little piece of paradise!

A Little piece of Heaven

What a wonderful place and wonderful hosts! We felt right at home and enjoyed stretching our legs after driving all day! I hope I find myself near there again so I could stay another night! Highly recommend!

Quiet and peaceful

After 4 days of hard driving, I needed to recharge, myself and the RV!
Pretty Praire was a beautiful peaceful stop, with friendly and gracious hosts, including grandson and cats. I only wish I had more time to visit, especially in warmer weather. The ponds looked like fun. I would definitely try to plan my westerly route to include a stop here next time.

Great hosts

I was enjoying my stay at rcKrehbiel. I was planning to stay only 1 night, but stayed 4 nights. Their place is beautiful,and I was blessed staying there.
The hosts was very nice people. I had an issue with my trailer,the host helped me fix it which I am very grateful for.
I definitely would like to come back, if I am passing through.

Beautiful Spot, Amazing Hosts

While we only stayed for one day, it left a lasting impression.
We hooked up by the pond and it was just beautiful.
Our dogs loved running in the field and my dad and I loved watching the sun set over the pond.

Rckrehbiel and his wife were some of the nicest, most hospitable people we’ve ever met.

If we are ever back in the area, we definitely would love to stop in.

Amazing Spot

We stopped here for one night on our way through Kansas. It was an amazing spot.Our great hosts made us feel right at home and we enjoyed sharing RV stories with them. They have an 80 acre farm with several spots for RVs. We chose a spot next to one of their ponds under some huge cottonwood trees that must have been over 100 years old. It was very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. We even met their cats and the Shetland pony that roams the pastures. One of our best experiences yet. Thanks for allowing us to share your home!!

Great place to stay!!!

What wonderful hosts they are! Went out of their way to make this newbie feel comfortable and helped me learn more about my Travel Trailer too - thanks so much. Had a 50 amp hook up, and I used my plug to make into a 30 amp - right next to where I pulled into, by the barn and under a great shade tree - which is well trimmed to not hit any branches!
Kittens are here right now and adorable. Even my dog loved them.
Easy to pull into and out of - any size set up you have - plenty of room. Just turning into driveway is the most narrow part - otherwise acres of land. I heard they have a zip line and pond, but didn't see or use.
If you're passing thru anywhere near by - make the stop here for a quiet night's sleep and enjoy!
Thanks again Pretty Prairie Song & Dance for making this newbie feel welcomed.

We enjoyed staying here

Beautiful place and great hosts. We appreciated being able to have water and electricity hookups and being able to dump at their place before leaving. That’s very convenient. It was easy to come in and out.


RVers

Beautiful, comfortable place

Great hosts! Even though we didn’t get to meet them, they were very nice and responsive. Our kids really enjoyed playing with the kittens that live on the farm. We loved taking walks around the farm.
We loved this place. It’s very nice to be connected to water and electricity. We got to dump before we left. We are very thankful for that.

Beautiful setting, Wonderful, Helpful Host

The property was soo pretty with a pond you could jump off the diving board or zip line into the water. The land was peaceful and the view was gorgeous. Our host was very helpful. Would definitely stay again!

Lovely hosts, peaceful surroundings!

Wonderful experience! Our hosts were so welcoming & friendly. We enjoyed great conversation with them both upon arrival and departure. The land was beautiful. There was a nice walking path back to 2 lakes, a quaint sitting bench and an adorable swinging bench from a large tree. Plenty of room to enjoy the beautiful views of pasture and farm land but private enough to feel nestled. We really enjoyed this experience and will definitely stop here again if we're back in the area.

Prairie was Pretty ... Nice!

Enjoyed our overnight stay and host was very pleasant and helpful. Took a walk out back along the pond and the back fields (watch out for droppings!) to stretch out. Very nice place, and enjoyed ourselves.
